Winter Speaker Series 2024: Caitlin Chaisson

The Interdisciplinary Artist: Jaune Quick-to-See Smith

Jaune Quick-to-See Smith has been challenging dominant narratives of art and history since the mid-1970s and is one of the most significant artists working today. Her interdisciplinary practice includes painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture, and Smith’s influence reaches across the visual arts through her teaching, curating, and tireless advocacy. A citizen of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation, Smith’s artwork is grounded in her upbringing and beliefs, inspiring dialogues around important issues of land, consumerism, governance, and Indigenous self-determination. In the spring of 2023, the Whitney organized its first ever major retrospective of an Indigenous artist, and Chaisson, a member of the curatorial team, will discuss the transformative power of Smith’s practice.

The lecture will be held in person at the Museum and virtually on Vimeo, and will be followed by audience Q&A and tea reception.

Lecture recording will be available to all subscribers and ticket holders.
